I got a copy of the title today which listed the Casita (87) with a shipping weight of 950lbs. It included a air conditioner which my Dad (Dad has the camper in Arkansas) took out for me. Which IF the shipping weight is correct that will give me closer to 900lbs dry wt. So between the cars available weight room that's left and the campers 500-600 I should have plenty of leeway for excess stuff and still not overload it.Paula (Golightly) Bindrich
It's a sad fact, but both Casita and Scamp and others seem to have understated the trailer weights in the past (apparently to keep them below 1,000 lbs for some reason) and both now can be weaselly about umm, options weighing more. Regardless, what you should do is take the car and trailer, loaded as if for a trip, to a commercial scale and get axle by axle weights for everything (side-by-side also if you can) because you will be towing in the real world where the paper weights have no real meaning.

And for Morgan, if I answer the speed of dark question right do I get a prize?
The speed of dark is nothing since dark doesn't exist. It's simply the lack of light.
What do I win?!

Au contraire, Paula.

You can read about the Dark Sucker Theory which is anonymous but sometimes attributed to Alfred E. Neuman.

Prize?

This is comparable to my friend that always made sure he put the end of a cigarette with the manufacturers logo in to his mouth.

If he smoked it the other way around, he was afraid the ink may be habit forming.

The first corollary of the Dark Sucker Theory is the Cold Pump Theory, but that's a 300 level course.
